Why should you choose Social Engineering Explained?
Fraudsters use social engineering to manipulate or deceive people into revealing confidential information or taking actions, such as allowing them to access secure systems. Social engineering exploits human psychology rather than systems or technology - which is why understanding how and why it works is crucial to stopping it.
What will you learn?
You'll learn about the nature of social engineering and how and why it works, as well as the wider context of the digital fraud threat. You'll look at the techniques and motivations used by the perpetrators, and the specific terminology applied. You'll explore how to educate staff and implement a strategy to fight the threat, and learn how to fortify your own personal security online.
What skills will you gain?
You will be able to:
- understand what social engineering is and how it is done, in the wider context of digital fraud
- Identify the main risks of social engineering, as well as who commits it and why
- develop and implement an effective strategy to fight the threat, learning and applying fraud prevention principles
Who should attend this course?
Anyone can be a target for social engineering, and knowing as much about the threat as possible can help them stop becoming a victim. If you work in an environment where you and/or your team could be targeted for your access to systems and data, or if you are responsible for or have an interest in preventing fraud, financial and economic crime in your organisation, then this course is for you.
